    13. Challenges <ul><li>Size Alexa: 8 th most popular site,~ 9% of users, 0.6% pageviews, but how many users/ contributors? </li></ul><ul><li>Sampling anonymous readers and contributors, non-homogenous community, high turn-over rates </li></ul><ul><li>Sharing / Open Access (privacy, userid) </li></ul>
    14. Who and Why? <ul><li>Basic demographics </li></ul><ul><li>80/20 - 95/5 – 95/95 :-) (Wales vs Swartz) </li></ul><ul><li>Rise of the Bourgeoisie – Temporal shift of contribution patterns (Kittur et al. 2007) </li></ul><ul><li>Zealots - Good Samaritans (Anthony et al. 2005) </li></ul><ul><li>EN: Edits 195M, 4000 editors (non bots) 32.82% </li></ul><ul><li>Active Wikipedians (5 edt/mth): delta -10% +20% </li></ul><ul><li>25% of edits by newbies (less than 1 mth) </li></ul>

    16. <ul><ul><li>Number of anonymous users </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Qualitative differences in contributions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Survey: More information on types of edits (possible input to modelling contributions) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Survey: Motivation for editing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypothesis: Power-law distribution of total edits, but content production shifts into tail over time, because Samaritans only get involved after sufficient amount of stubs exist </li></ul></ul>Who and Why?
    17. Quality <ul><li>Pagerank (Wilkinson) </li></ul><ul><li>No. of Revisions, Authors, Words ... </li></ul><ul><li>Peer-review (Nature, Wedemeyer 2008) </li></ul><ul><li>New concept and understanding of quality </li></ul><ul><li>Awareness of quality assurance processes </li></ul><ul><li>Diversity of expertise contributing (Page) </li></ul>
